The Ideal Lockable Cat Flap Patio Pet door is available in 3 different standard height ranges. Custom sizes are also available (custom extensions modify the standard heights) so this patio insert will work with nearly any size patio sliding door. The glass is 1/8" thick safety glass, and the aluminum frame is 5/8" thick.
These inserts are designed to be installed and removed with ease. They can be permanently screwed into your opening, however, most customer will set them into the slider track only, that way they can be set off to the side if you need your entire slider opening for any reason. A locking-pin mechanism is included to lock your slider in place when next to the insert.
Moore Pet recommends that you use an adjustable brace bar or even a stick behind the sliding door, this method of immobilizing the patio sliding door makes it nearly impossible for anyone to enter from the outside.
4-Way Locking Control Settings:
Open both directions
Closed from both directions
Closed going outside - Open coming indoors
Open going outside - Closed coming indoors
The 4-Way locking feature allows you to predetermine the access you want your cat to have. Many Cat owners rely on the "Entry Access Only" setting so that they can be assured that once their cat comes into the house at night, they would not be able to go back outside until you change the setting, giving them access.

The top spring-loaded adjusting section of the Ideal LCF Patio Doors appears
as an "H" piece when viewed from the side. The overall width of this piece is
13/16" (Will fit into most any sliding glass door track).
The spring-loaded adjustment provides for a 2 1/2" range for proper fitting into
your opening. Most top tracks in sliding glass doors do not have any center
rails, however, if you do have this feature then the Ideal LCF Patio Door can
straddle any rail at the top 5/8" wide or narrower.
The spring-loaded top is secured with 2 thumbscrew locks, accessible from
inside the house only, someone from the exterior of the house would not be able
to compress or remove the unit.
The bottom section of the Ideal LCF Patio Door has an overall width of 5/8".
A semi-circle, "C" channel is centered and runs the length of the bottom. This
"C" channel is design to straddle the center rail in the channel on the floor
that your sliding glass door follows.
By straddling this center rail, the Ideal LCF Patio Pet Door will remain
centered to the frame of your sliding door when closed to this unit.
Note:If the center rail in the channel on the floor is
wider than 5/16", then this patio Insert will not be able to straddle it and as
a result may not fit properly in your opening
These Patio Inserts are a stock items and ship within 24 hours (business days),
custom models require 1-3 business days to fabricate. All units ship via UPS.
Measuring for the Patio Pet Door:
determine which height range will work with your slider, open the
slider and measure from the very bottom inside track to the very top
inside track. As you look down on the groove that the slider follows
on the floor, you may see a thin rail. You will want to measure down
past that rail, from the deepest part of the channel on the floor to
the very top inside channel above.
Will These Patio Pet doors fit all Sliding Doors?
you look at the track on the floor your slider follows; you most often
will see a "rail". If this "rail" is narrower than 5/8" (as you look
down on it), then the Ideal Patio Insert should fit your slider.
cannot guarantee fits as manufacturers are constantly coming out with
new designs, but call us if you have any questions at 1-800-829-7876).
What is the Rise?:
This is the distance that the bottom of the pet opening
is positioned off of the ground and the distance that the pet will have to
step over to use the pet door.
are several different rise options available (2.5, 4, 8, and 12 inches) to
accommodate different pets.
(Note: Larger rise options are not
available on smaller pet openings
Draft Stopper / Weather stripping:
draftstopper is a wide vinyl weather stripping section that attaches to
the back side of your sliding door. When an insert is installed, your
sliding door breaks the seal between the slider and fixed panel. This
weather stripping will seal out any drafts.
Adjustable Height Range:
top section of the Ideal Patio Pet Door floats on two tension rods that
compress or expand to obtain the best possible fit in the patio door
frame. The top is fit into the upper patio slider track and the bottom
rests on the bottom slider track. Once in place, there are two thumb
bolts that lock the top section into place to prevent the Patio Pet
door from being removed from the outside.
How does my Sliding Door Lock?
Patio Pet Door comes with a locking pin mechanism to use if you choose.
We strongly suggest bracing the door with a stick or an adjustable
brace bar; as this immobilizes your slider and is the most effective
way to secure your sliding door.
Different ways to Install the Patio Pet Door:
Ideal Patio Pet Door can be mounted on the stationary side of the patio
door. Many patio doors have stoppers that normally prevent the
stationary panel from moving. If these stoppers can be removed, the
stationary panel can be moved to accommodate the patio panel.
Note: This technique will not work on patio doors where the stationary panel is molded into the frame.
Extensions for "Custom" Ranges:
makes 3 different height ranges of patio pet doors: Regular, Shorty
& Tall. For customers who have a slider height that falls between
these 3 ranges, we have custom extensions made so that we can fit any
height from 75" to 106" tall. These extensions slide in at the top of
the insert. Some customers use a couple of screws to stabilize the
extension piece. (
See picture in chart below for custom extension piece)
Weather Seal Foam Bumper:
Patio Pet Door comes with a foam bumper so your slider will gently rest
against the Patio Pet door. This foam bumper will also help to seal
out drafts and bugs.
Security Panel to Lock Pet Opening:
The Ideal Patio Pet Door also comes with a slide-in panel to restrict pet access.
